Very honestly, I’m not sure if I mean ego in a positive or negative connotation here. I suppose if pressed for an answer I’d have to say it’s both. Moving to Real Madrid would allow Hazard to honestly believe himself to be one of the world’s best players.

I’m not sure he can really make that claim while he’s a member of Chelsea’s squad. He’s watched too many talented attacking players move to La Liga to reach their full potential. Something tells me he has an ardent belief that he needs to do the same thing.
I believe the talent gap has closed enough between England and Spain to make this move unnecessary. I just don’t think the rest of the world has realized it yet.
Unfortunately for Chelsea, it seems the rest of the world will be catching on too late to keep Hazard in England. The silly notion that top players have to move to Real Madrid or Barcelona to truly be considered “great” may cost them their most talented attacker.
